Re: Transat or Sunwing ?

My experience during the hiring process at Transat has been excellent. When I went thru the hiring process I was still a Permanent Resident in the process of getting my citizenship. I felt the interview happened in a friendly, relax but professional atmosphere. I have a hard time believing what has...

Re: Transat or Sunwing ?

I do speak French fluently even with some québécois accent ( I went to University in Quebec). I live in Quebec and my kids were born here as well and speak French as well. However I am not québécois, I don't have a French family name and I was born abroad (although I couldn't be prouder to be Canadi...

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

Some main points to summarize all of the above posts of why Direct Entry Captains may be required: 1. A lot of F/O's don't meet the upgrade matrix requirements (5000 TT, 2000 Jet, etc). 2. Some of the senior F/O's who could upgrade don't want to as they have better relative seniority as F/O's. 3. I...

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

No word on what they're doing with those of us that were pooled from December 2017 interviews? I hear some reference checks have been completed for some. I suppose 10 July will be the tell all, if 23 July is the start date. Fingers crossed. The silence is killing us! Same here, I turned down two gr...

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

Any news on the July ground school? The July schedule shows 9 new hires for YYZ starting July 23rd, but no names are listed yet. I've heard that the first course or two will be cadets. Since they require a longer line-indoc period, they are started first to ensure that they get their hours in befor...

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

So you’re saying that you successfully passed everything and then they left you hanging? Did you even have a job offer letter? Weird. No, just had the interview and three months later the classic 'The interview was successful you will be placed in a pool for a year' like most of pilots who ended up...

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

I will repeat the question I posted above since it got mixed with another topic: Does anyone knows if those interviewed in December and who received a confirmation that they were successful during the interview are still being considered for the upcoming ground schools? In other words is there stil...

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

Any idea what's the status of those who interviewed last December and received the 'good email' three months later? Are they still in the pool?
Thanks!
